Red and White Challenge

Cornish Heritage Farms Red & White Challenge


When I saw that the challenge was red and white, the first thing that came to mind was Christmas!  I decided to make this cute little Christmas tree that can be used as a card, tag, or an ornament on a tree.  I have this cute stamp set from Cornish Heritage Farm called The Night Before Christmas (part of The Rummage Bin line).  It has just been re-released by Cornish Heritage Farms.

The Christmas tree shape is made using Spellbinders Nested Pine Trees die. I folded the paper, moved the folded line down inside the die so that it would not be cut and I would have a folded card. Then I die cut another tree to put on top. This way I keep the tree shape and do not have a cut off point.

Before stamping image, I wiped the paper with an
anti-static bag.  When you use this little bag, the embossing powder will only stick to the stamped image (glitter only sticks where it is supposed to as well).  I then used Versamark Watermark Stamp Pad and Hampton Art White Embossing Powder. To give the card a little bling, I used Martha Stewart Glitter. I glittered the edge of the tree in green and the star in clear and silver.

You can see the green glitter on the sides of the tree.
